Kelly Ripa flaunts her taut butt in 'cheeky New Year' throwback photo with husband Mark Consuelos
MANHATTAN, NEW YORK: Actress and TV star Kelly Ripa shared a "cheeky" throwback photo of her perky buttocks on Instagram to ring in the New Year and fans are delighted! The photo had Ripa posing with her back to the camera in a black swimsuit that complimented her svelte figure. In the photo, she was seen with her husband of 25 years, actor Mark Consuelos.
The 52-year-old, who has three grown up children, Lola, Michael and Joaquin, had her blonde hair open in waves and the hair flip was picture perfect. Consuelos wore black swimming trunks and a black t-shirt. The pair have been married since 1996 and are still going strong, per Daily Mail.
The post was captioned, “#tbt 2020 Threw backside and had a cheeky new year #throwbackthursday.”
Ripa was more recently seen hosting the ‘16th Annual CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute’ at the American Museum of Natural History, along with broadcast journalist Anderson Cooper. She stunned in a velvet jumpsuit with three bows that had crystals on them and faux pearls as well as well, as per Daily Mail.
The 'Live! With Kelly and Ryan' host and the 'Riverdale' actor have been married for more than two decades now, but their meeting was a meet-cute story for the ages. The pair met when Consuelos had auditioned for a role in the show ‘All My Children', wherein he was to play Kelly’s love interest because of their immediate connection and amazing chemistry.
Ripa had spoken to Insider about how she and Consuelos had been dealing with their children moving out and leaving them to be empty nesters. She said, “We took our first vacation in June without our children that we've ever had. We had never, not since our honeymoon, we went away on our honeymoon for five days. And then ever since we have been with children. Mark always jokes that a vacation with your kids is a trip. You take a trip, you don't take a vacation."
She continued, "We took a vacation. We woke up when our eyes opened. We left our dogs home with the dog sitter. So we actually took a vacation. There was no schedule but our own. So we hiked, we talked, we read, we watched the evening news, we went to late dinners, we had late breakfasts. We did whatever we felt like. We went to the spa. We went into one of those flotation tanks that you float in warm salt water and it's dark and you just float there and they play chimes and things, and you listen to sounds."
